Soft emcees should be shaking in their shoes right about now. On the lead single off his next mixtape, Bishop Lamont and two equally uncompromising colleagues join forces to mount a full-scale Invasion of the rap game. Featuring a dissonant keyboard chord layered over a six-note bassline and a crackling breakbeat, M-EZ the Instrumentalist‘s stark production sets the mood for lyrical carnage. Sure enough, the West Coast mainstay wastes no time in turning the track into an abattoir. Brooklyn-repping guests Torae and Flowers follow suit, the former impressing with a barrage of artful alliteration. This hard-hitting cut is slated to appear on Bishop Lamont’s (P)reformation mixtape, dropping soon as the official prelude to his (also unscheduled) studio album, The Reformation.
